“My heart is in my hand here. First thanks goes to God almighty for allowing this as these things are promised to no one being. It chooses through the people. Second thanks goes to my fellow artiste-wife-soulmate-best friend @fayannlyons on writing with me on this beast of a song and sharing views to get the right execution and delivery off the ground. I have learned skill works better with skilled teamwork. Third thanks @thedjavalanche for letting us get to grit on this beat and make some magic. He sent me a whole set of beats and when I asked about this one after my bro @iampumpa had sent me it to hear we were ready to go!!!! Big big big love to the V.I massive.
Hard Fete was a people’s song with a people’s story from a particular era!!
To every carnival soul that carried this song across the finish line we say thank you.
To every single person in every sector of life who stood with this song right to the last I cannot thank you enough!! Thank you thank thank you thank you all. We ain’t come for no stand up!!”
